The Gem of the North

Dunstanburgh Castle is one of the real gems of the north, from the challenge to to faculties, it’s just one of those courses that if it were in another part of the UK would be extortionate and packed, but here you get a great round for a good price on a course with true greens and spectacular views.

I played on a Saturday morning, I wanted to tee off early and booked a 07:40 tee time, however I was really early and the four members who were shooting off at 07:00 said: don’t hang around waiting if the tee is free crack on! I let them get away, but finally caught them up at the 6th where they immediately let me play though and I raced round the rest of the course, well as much as you can as you have to take in the vista of every shot.

Clearly the 13th is the signature hole, but they are all fantastic. My only minor gripe is the rough, it’s savage, on some of the holes it is a case of: fairway, first cut, two foot grass and you lose your ball, even if it just rolls in, please just give the edges of that sawgrass a trim!

The clubhouse is nice and has a great mix of golfers, walkers and beach goers.

I thoroughly recommend this course, for me one of the best in the UK!
